The Demon commenced his maniacal laugh as he zeroed his distance to Marcus. He yanked the chains strapped all over Marcus with his obsidian hand and hurled his levitating body into the door... into the blinding lights.
"LET'S ENJOY PAIN... TOGETHER!!!!!"
It was bright. Maybe too bright for Marcus's eyes that it almost took a whole minute for him to adjust to the light which greeted his eyes.
Yes, His powers were taken from him, So it made sense as to why his eyes took time to get along with the radiance.
Radiance?. Maybe not. The brightness before him existed just for a moment as the vision dulled yet again, carrying his eyes to a familiar, rocky floor.
He still wasn't fully awake from his shock of getting thrown into the light by his inner demon. It was alarming somehow, even the light, it seemed to scrape his body a bit.
"Where am I now?"&nbs
What he realized was something true.The weeping boy and this struggling boy...from the beginning itself...Was him... was his younger self.Was Marcus G Orno......The boy before him cried and cringed back, holding his aching hand on the other.Marcus looked at him in shock. It was, after all, his younger self."So this is my hidden memory?..."He inquired himself."But what's so traumatic about this... I mean I still remember this."Just as Marcus finished his words, blood splashed on his face, drenching it in warm, red blood.HIS BLOOD!.Marcus's eyes were wide as he witnessed the Ogretto pulling back its ax from the decapitated boy's body.Even though he had seen blood before, even though he had killed literal Gods before, the scene before Marcus almost made him trip over himself.Because the one who got killed
"... I died... I... I died!!" The boy's words were trembling as they met Marcus's ears. Marcus was 5 meters away from the weeping boy, who was convincingly his younger self. Marcus was pretty sure that he could not hear anything, anything at all!! besides the ringing cries of the boy which echoed deep inside his eardrums. Oddly, he was not able to take his eyes off the weeping boy and focus on his inner demon, who seemed to float above him, shouting something at him. But all the connotations and shouts from the Demon did not reach Marcus as it got inundated under the volume from the cries of his younger, whimpering self. He felt that his demon was telling him something very serious. His intuition never lied to him, but as it was now, he couldn't move the way he wanted, instead, he could only keep his eyes straight towards the weepin
"I'm not afraid of you anymore... Because I have something else I'm scared of." "Just take me to the next one" "Sure thing" ............................................ The demon turned his back towards Marcus as he stepped closer to the very edge of the land inside the abyss. "I hope you realize what you are supposed to do inside this hidden memory of yours, Marcus" The demon spoke as he walked over to the edge. "Yes... I think I do have a rough idea of what I am supposed to do here" Marcus replied, his voice had greatly changed. It was no more the same voice that leaned a bit on the high pitchside. Instead, his voice which he uttered made the demon feel like he was talking to someone mature. Well, it made the demon feel like he was talking to someon
"Then what's the wait for?... Let's stop dawdling and just get this over with"........*Flash*Marcus and his demon jumped into the portal without any hesitation. Marcus seemed more interested than the demon as he took the first step into the void less portal.The demon who comprehended Marcus's interest was surprised, just minutes ago, the man before him was crying for petty reasons. Now just after enduring the hidden memories of his first dungeon which was supposedly one of his biggest traumas, he had started acting how an 18-year-old would.The light inside the portal was a bit too blinding,it was a bit too lustrous for Marcus, who had lost his powers for the time being. But he didn't wince, Instead, he stared into the exit point which was, now just a few meters away from him.The demon grinned to himself as he watched Marcus dive
On the very center of the screen was a familiar 'Play' button.Marcus, without any hesitation, clicked on the button.*Pant* *Pant*It was a movie... It looked like one.What played before Marcus was someone panting heavily while walking through the familiar dungeon of the nine tails. But the viewpoint in which it was exhibited was, oddly,in the first person.The experience, for him, felt like he was dwelling inside the movie.Just like Virtual Reality!!.And with the 8D sound ringing inside his ears, it was ultra realistic.The man, who could be probably Marcus as he thought, was walking through the woods.Suddenly, the bushes beside him started crinkling. Marcus watched as the man on the screen tried to start running.....&nb
"Which means I can use my system for casual purposes as well. And look what I found in my inventory"Marcus grinned as he showed his inventory to the demon.The demon's eyes gleamed as he looked at the inventory and laughed."No way!! KEKEKEKEK"[CR Cheat Perk: Omnipotent Master Of 6969]............................................"The name... *Cough* is interesting... I wonder what it would be... but I'm more interested in the perk I was supposed to obtain after clearing this dungeon"Marcus said as he tried clicking on the perk which was shaped as a science lab vial.But it didn't seem to react. It could've been probably because the system obstructed it for the time being or it could've been because he still had to finish the hidden memories and regain his powers back first."I kn
"It's simple..."Marcus stretched his limbs before turning back to look his demon in his eyes."You boost me up... and I'll climb"....."Seriously?"The demon asked."Why do you even ask? It's simple. You boost me up and I'll jump and grab one of its tails"Marcus pointed upwards as if accentuating his point."But you only have your right hand freed. Did you forget your left hand which is still chained? How will you even manage to pull yourself up there with just one of your hands?"The demon shrugged.It was a fact. Marcus still had a memory to clear, which meant he still had to break free from the last chain which was refraining him from freedom."Don't worry. I trust in my hand. This..."Marcus paused as he looked at his right hand which was the only one he could u
"Man..."Marcus sighed as he frantically clicked on them."I don't even know what they mean"Marcus thrust his finger into the window and held it on the vial as he sighed in downfall.*Ping*.....*Ping*"Eh... Woahhhhhh"Marcus who exclaimed had suddenly gone silent as he saw the details on the window tab which opened up before him as he held down his finger on the vial, which was displayed inside his inventory.[Useless CR Cheat Perk: Demise To Power][Demise To Power explained below][Demise To Power is called a Useless CR Cheat Perk because it's simply impossible for a mortal to achieve.
